YoYoJam Rick Wyatt Mega SpinFaktor Yo-Yo

Description (Brief)
This Mega SpinFaktor yo-yo was used in April of 2001 by Rick Wyatt to set a world "sleep" record of 13 minutes 5 seconds. The yo-yo, made expressly for Wyatt's record attempt, has ceramic ball bearings, a weighted ring, and an adjustable gap. The goal of a sleeping trick is to keep the yo-yo spinning at the end of its line for an extended period of time.
